Women-Owned Company Encourages Texans to Taste the Milo’s Difference

DALLAS--()--It’s National Beverage Day and Milo’s Famous Tea is now available throughout Texas for the first time. Milo’s Famous Sweet Tea, Unsweet Tea and No Calorie Tea Sweetened with Splenda® can be purchased in Walmart stores across the state.

Shoppers will be excited to know Milo’s is now available in Walmart stores in their area. Milo’s beverages meet the growing demand for all-natural products that are free from added preservatives. Most ready-to-drink teas are processed from instant or concentrate tea, however, Milo’s Tea is brewed fresh from high quality custom blended tea leaves.

“Our beverages are different from others because we source only natural ingredients, fresh brew all of our teas and never use colors, acids, additives or preservatives,” said Patricia Wallwork, CEO and an owner of Milo’s Tea Company. “Walmart has been a strong ally for the expansion of our products as their shoppers are craving fresh, all natural products that are made in the U.S. like Milo’s Tea.”

The majority of Walmart’s 245 million customers are women, and women control $20 trillion of annual consumer spending globally. Walmart's Global Women's Economic Empowerment Initiative includes a goal to source $20 billion from women-owned businesses for its U.S. business and to double sourcing from women suppliers for international countries where it does business by 2016.
